Percy Edward Lawrie, died in Teignmouth Hospital, on February 6, 1988, aged 85. A member of the Eton XI in 1920 and 1921, he made in his second year 545 runs with an average of 42.15 and at Lord's played two invaluable innings of 53 and 67 not out, which had much to do with a narrow victory for his side and showed that he had a splendid temperament for the big occasion. In August he played for Hampshire against Glamorgan at Southampton and made 49, helping Newman to add 150 for the second wicket in two hours. After this, his failure to get a Blue in his three years at Oxford must have been a great disappointment. In 1922 he failed in the Freshmen's match, but an innings of 56 for Hampshire against the University secured him a trial. However, Oxford batting was strong and neither in that year nor in the two following ones could he keep his place. Meanwhile in 1923 he played regularly for Hampshire in the vacation, scoring 520 runs with an average of 23.63 and making 107 at Leicester in under two hours to help avert threatening defeat. He played little for the county later, through his last appearance was not until 1928. In all first-class cricket he made 1,084 runs with an average of 21.25. He was a particularly fine off-driver.
